Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Session one with Zazu we began with her skill “Drop”. We practiced this skill in the classroom focusing on her duration under medium distractions. Some of the distractions that were used were Distance/ Movement , dog and toy. Zazu started off slightly distracted with low engagement but after a few “ah ah” corrections she gained engagement with the trainer. Considering all the distractions that were used she did extremely well! She remained in a drop without breaking 90% of the time. One thing she did struggle with was exciting movement of the trainer too close to her. With more frequent rewards this was improving through the session. The next step for this skill would be moving outside for higher distractions. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Sit Comment: Session two with Zazu we practiced her skill of sit. We practiced this skill rather similar to her skill of drop. We used many of the same distractions, Zazu struggles with food distractions as they are too high of a distraction just yet. Throughout this session Zazu had amazing engagement and showed great duration with the distractions that were used. The next step for this skill is to slowly introduce food distractions. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Session three with Zazu we practiced a new skill! We introduced “Skate board”. For this being her first session of this skill she did amazing! The trainer started by using a lure onto the skate board until her front two feet were on. Then the trainer lured her forward for a few metres and rewarding at the end. Zazu went straight on and showed no hesitation, she followed the lure no problem and had great duration. The next step for this skill would be slowly decreasing the lure and adding a verbal cue. Focus: Foundation A

We recommend your next step should be…
